Biography   Henry Wix


Born in Germany in 1866, Henry Otto Wix decamped from his native land in the late 1890s to escape being drafted into the army.  After studying art in New York, he was active in Hawaii as a portraitist.  His marriage ended in divorce there, leaving him in a state of severe depression and an alcoholic.

About 1910, he settled in San Francisco into a studio in the old Monkey Block (now the Transamerica Pyramid).  Wix sketched widely in California and made several trips to Mexico.  Destitute, he often would trade paintings for food or alcohol.  He was active in northern California until about 1920 when he was invited to stay at the estate of Adela Rogers St John in Santa Barbara.
